So...that's why the same ten stories are updated ten times a day in my NYT's feed...


This is frightening as all hell ...

I can't believe I missed this article. It's only further evidence of the dumbing down of the English language ... if we can't trust the news we read to have consistency provided by persnickety editors, the way we speak is going to change vastly and the way we teach our children to communicate will change even more so. This is a generation already embracing text-messaging and speaking in abbreviations out loud (lol, omg, etc.) ... it might seem persnickety, but I think some traditions exist for very good reasons and people often underestimate the culture-changing effects of language.

But then I'm probably just a bitter copy editor.


What a joy to find seomone else who thinks this way.
